RIMS Research Projects

An international joint research program implemented in combination with any of the types of joint research activities described below. Leading researchers in their respective fields are invited and stay at RIMS for a medium- to long-term duration, working on specific research subjects for a period of several months to one year. RIMS chooses and implements more than one project under this RIMS Research Project program each academic year. A call for proposals is published around June each academic year for projects to be implemented two years later. Each applicant should organize an organizing committee comprising several members to submit an application. Projects under this RIMS Research Project program are implemented to develop researchers who will lead research projects in the fields of mathematics and mathematical sciences in the future. The applicant may recommend young researchers participate, in cooperation with leading researchers, in planning, drawing and implementing international research projects as "RIMS Project Fellows."

Financial support

Expenses directly related to the Research Project (for example, transportation fees between the participants’ home countries and Japan, transportation fees in Japan, accommodation fees, and a per diem for invited overseas researchers) will be covered by RIMS up to a limit of 5,000,000 Japanese yen in accordance with the regulations of Kyoto University.

* Access (domestic travel expenses)

Screening process

The Advisory Board of RIMS will select the proposal(s) to be adopted from among the submitted proposals, and approve three to seven organizing committee members in total, including at least one Advisory Board member.
